As mobile increasingly becomes a recognised medium for brand advertising and marketing, albeit one that in most cases still only attracts tentative investment, the value chain is expanding. There are two underlying approaches emerging: one that sees mobile as a separate channel to be used either independently or to be fitted at the edges of a wider campaign; the other considers mobile to be just one part of the marketing mix but one that is nevertheless central to media planning from the start.
This session will take a practical look at how the value chain is evolving for mobile advertising. It will examine what type of players are currently in the mobile advertising value chain, consider the return on investment of the model as it currently stands, and discuss what the marketplace should look like to sustain a fruitful mobile advertising channel.
